Starting a business is like stepping on a tightrope, while at the same time you’re just hoping you wouldn’t collapse. This might sound nerve racking, but if you don’t know what to expect, how will… More
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend? Well, it’s time to get back to business, because the new week in about to commence and the hair edges must be laid so you can get paid!!!! Honestly, we’ve talked about skincare and makeup in my Everyday is Mothers Day Gift Ideas series, so let’s discuss something different, like Curls for instance. Yep, were talking about hair!!!!! If you watch Fox’s daytime talk show “The REAL”, you would have seen the Curls products on display and this product line is the main topic for this article.
Here is the official Curls video featuring the Founder of Curls showing their new Blueberry Bliss Collection on “The REAL”:
Here is my review for the New “Curls Blueberry Bliss Collection”:
Blueberry Bliss CURL Control Paste:
The edge control paste honestly lives up to it’s name. The thick clear blueberry infused scented paste glides easily and let’s just say no lose hairs will be left standing. I like to think of myself as a hair product sampler, so on my sampling journey, I have tried many products including edge control pastes, but none of them could tame my 4a edges. Let’s be real naturalistas! Natural Hair is no joke, so finding a product that works for a specific use is comforting.
If you rock several hair styles including crochet, weave, braids, or natural hair then this edge control has your back. P.S. You will hear my convo regarding the edge paste in the review video below!
TIP – Use on wet hair for a soft hold or on dry hold for a strong hold.
Water, Ceteareth-25, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Vegetable Glycerin, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Keratin, Hydrolyzed Quinoa, Silk Amino Acids, Vaccinium Angustifolium (Blueberry) Fruit Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Jojoba Esters, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Blue 1, Red 33
Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner:
At last the Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave In Conditioner, this should be your go to hair softening product the will allow you to rock a curly-fro while still protecting your hair from the humidity. P.S. Just so you know, the Blueberry fragrant is not too offensive, so you don’t have to worry about smelling a strong odor. In my video review, you will be seeing me use the Leave in to moisturize my hair.
Benefits of Blueberries:
Proanthocyanidins, the plant chemical found in blueberries, interacts with hair follicles to accelerate growth and slow down hair graying and loss.
Blueberries, rich in vitamin C and B complex are good for increasing hair growth by improving oxygenation and circulation of blood in the body, particularly the scalp.
Prevents hair breakage, too little Vitamin C your diet can lead to hair breakage

The Royal tour continues and now we are going from tea sets to books. On blog, I’ve talked about so many books and television shows, but out of all the entertainments posts that I’ve written, Victoria consistently makes me smile. If you’ve been following my blog, you would have heard me talk about the new season of Victoria and the novel, but sadly I didn’t have the book at the time. I did promise to read it and feature it on my blog and that day is here! Special thanks to St. Martins Press for sending me the book.
I got the book and let me tell you how descriptive and the elegance in the vocabulary within every dialogue was unbelievable. Daisy Goodwin accurately matched the characters in the mini-series based on the novel and I must admit just like the show, the book left me wanting more. Below is a video of me talking about the novel and other books that Daisy Goodwin wrote. Keep your fingers that I get a chance to read “The American Heiress & The Fortune Hunter also by Daisy Goodwin.
“Victoria” By. Daisy Goodwin:

Now the tour is going international! Let’s be honest, traveling abroad is on the pricey side and the long flights can make your dreams of traveling fade away like the wind. Thankfully, I found the perfect way to have tea, but you can now drink tea as if you were the Queen of England. Just like you, I am also fascinated with the history of the British Royal family, along with the history of many other cultures. So finding a tea set company who sells authentic sets at an affordable price was hard to find until now.
Anne’s Vintage Delights is your destination for having a moment just for you as a woman. Her shop has some of the most intricate designs that will make the perfect gift for the special person in your life. The china is durable and the plate can be used for tea biscuits and many more delicious treats.
This elegant tea set comprising one tea cup, saucer and plate was made by Royal Albert and the pattern is called Silver Maple. The pretty footed cup pairs really well with the soft and delicate pattern of the china.
This tea set consists of one tea cup, one saucer and one plate but they do have more available as well as a matching cake stand.
All pieces are in good vintage condition with no obvious wear.
The china will be packed securely with bubblewrap in a postage style cardboard box, sealed with a thank you napkin and the postage seal of the Queen of England.
To make your dreams of traveling abroad a reality, visit:https://www.etsy.com/shop/Annesvintagedelights to see all of the vintage tea sets that will make your moments more than just tea, instead you will have an adventure with each cup. You will be seeing me and my tea set traveling the world very soon. Keep following my blog for more of my Royal Tea Travels.

The Mother’s Day tour continues! First we talked about skincare, but what about the glam effect? Yes ladies, makeup will be the finishing touches to our whole look. We all have used name brand makeup lines, but the side effects of using makeup with chemicals will leave you with dry and weak skin that will be needing more moisture than usual. Do you find that your skin is dry after using makeup? Do you have to use more moisturizer?
If your answer is yes, then I have the best products that will hopefully cure all of your problems. ButterSoftBeauty creates skincare products made with natural oils and leaves your skin feeling moisturized after cleansing. Here is a list of all the ingredients and a video demonstrating for each product.
Luminizing Gold Beauty Butter:
Have you used face highlighters or makeup contours? The Body Luminizer is a natural highlighter that provides the same look you crave and locks in hydrating oils from the shea butter with each use. My shade is Gold and there is so many shades for you to choose from at the butter soft beauty shop!
Ingredients: Castor (Ricinus Communis) Oil, Babassu oil (Orbignya Oleifera), Shea (Butyrospermum Parkii) Butter, Glycerin (Vegetable Derived), Lecithin (Soy Derived), Candelilla (Persea Gratissima) Wax, Argan (Argania Spinosa) Oil, Squalane (derived from Olive Oil), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Titanium Dioxide, Mica (with Magnesium Myristate), Silica, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Powder, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Oil
RADIANT RED & CRANBERRY:
Last but not least, the lip colors!! You will see me use both of these lip colors in the video. Personally, I love the radiant red lip color. This lip color is a mild red lip stain and works well with my skin tone. I believe when it comes to lip colors, you should choose any color that you love, but it’s important to use natural lip glosses that will not only provide you with moisture, but long-lasting nutritional benefits.
The Cranberry lip gloss is a burgundy/cherry color and I would consider this for a more nighttime look. The scents of the lip glosses is not so strong, in fact they hardly smell at all. The texture is very potent with the thickness of shea butter, so you will be good to go for the whole day!
Ingredients: Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis), Babassu oil (Orbignya Oleifera), Cocoa Butter (Theobroma Cacao), Soy Butter (soya beans), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Glycerin, Soy Lecithin, Cetyl Alcohol, Candelilla Wax (Euphorbia Cerifera), Argan Oil (Argania Spinosa), Squalane, Tocopherol (vitamin e), Titanium dioxide, Iron Oxides, Sericite Mica (treated with Magnesium Myristate), Mica, carmine
